 / legislation

Many industries now come under legislation mandating compliance with fatigue risk management programmes. Failure to comply can result in fines and prosecution. In the UK Fatigue falls under the Duty of Care legislation and employers are required to eliminate or at least reduce the risk of fatigue. Under recent corporate manslaughter legislation it is no longer acceptable to turn a blind eye. If a risk should have been identified management are culpable. Failure to adequately manage the risk can result in fines and in the worse case imprisonment.
